Downloading Topcon GR-3 Static Files

After completing a static survey, download data files to a computer for storage, post—processing, or backup. Also, the receiver memory holds a finite amount of files and information, so downloading data prevents files from being lost. PC-CDU and Topcon Link both provide file managers to download files from the receiver to your computer, and to delete files from the receiver.

Connecting the Receiver and a Computer

Make sure the computer has the TPS USB driver installed and that the USB option is enabled.

1. Use the USB cable; connect the USB port of the computer to the receiver’s USB port.

2. Press the power buttons on the receiver and computer to turn them on.

Downloading Files via Topcon Link

Topcon Link provides two options for downloading files from a receiver: via Windows® Explorer or via the Topcon Link interface.

Before you can download files, you must connect your receiver and computer.
